For hair junkies, fall is a chance to refresh your look after a summer of beachy waves and bleached ends. Even if you’re low maintenance, the change doesn’t have to be drastic! This season offers a bounty of wearable chic trends perfect for upgrading your back to school look.
Trendy Cuts That Make the Grade
Lash-Grazing 70’s Fringe
This look frames your face without any time spent in front of the makeup mirror. Is your go-to style a messy bun? Why not add some Bardot bangs for a wispy 70’s look that perfectly transitions summer’s festival fashions to something more seriously sexy. Thanks to the magic of a flat iron, piecey Bardot bangs can work on thick, thin, curly, or straight hair.
The Asymmetrical Bob
It seems that every time we pick up a Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elle, or any magazine with the most stylish celebs, they all seem to be chopping down to the asymmetric bob. And no wonder why! This blunt cut is a sexy, chic look that luckily works with almost every different face shape, and adds a touch of edge to even the most classic wardrobes.
Head Back to School With a Saturated Hue
What the Heck is “Bronde”?
You know that line in “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” that eye candy-Gosling stole from Steve Carroll’s character?—“You are the perfect combination of sexy and cute.” Well, that’s what we’d say to bronde if we saw it in a bar.
Ombre was nice while it lasted, but this is the look that’s taking fall 2015 by storm. You are no longer forced to choose between brunette and blonde! Instead, bronde achieves a subtle look that offers blondes extra dimension, while brunettes benefit from the feature-illuminating lift.
Everybody Loves a Ginger
As the leaves begin to change to a beautiful, rusty red, it’s only natural you’d be inspired to do so as well. This fall’s scarlets are sexy and quirky, yet not confined to a single shade. Here are a few you’ll fall for.
Keeping in trend with fall 2015’s retro vibe, Emma Stone is rocking a shade fit for a Beatles song. While it’s hot this season, strawberry gold is a shade we could love forever.
Bronze’s Seductive Twin
Has summer left you with the aforementioned sun-bleached ends? This subtly seductive chocolate hue with blended touches of red is a fabulous way to take advantage of the natural highlights that light up your best features.
Honey skin tones glow when paired with rusted copper hues. This classic hair shade has been a show stopper for decades, but goes a step further by perfectly complementing this season’s fall and winter fashions.
Styles That Get an Easy A
A French Twist That Doesn’t Shout
Fall 2015’s take on this classic updo is slightly deconstructed for a softer look. Simple to do, it makes leggings look purposeful and pencil skirts more approachable. This style is most easily achieved on second-day hair. However, if your strands are particularly sleek, don’t skimp on the texturizing powder or bobby pins!
No, we’re not talking about those $3 plastic Goody brand bands with pointy teeth. This fall’s accessories were all done in minimalist fashion, using luxe leather or sweet, simple fabrics. Keep one of these elegant headbands in your bag, for an effortless, dainty, and feminine look anytime.
While some things should always stay high and tight, fall 2015’s ponytail is seeing a decided shift to low and loose. And even better? Unlike last year’s Frozen-inspired side braid, this look is easy to achieve! Great for gals who lust after ribbon-tied ponytails that never seem to stay put or to add some rebel-tough with an on-trend metal accented band.
